    from UDE's Judge Annoucements

    Hello Judges,

    We are happy to announce sponsorship opportunities for the upcoming 2009 WoW TCG & Miniatures World Championships, which will be held in Austin, TX from October 8-11. This is a phenomenal chance to improve your judging skills and to work with some of the most talented judges and players in the industry.

    This sponsorship opportunity will be open from Tuesday, August 25, 2009 through Friday, September 11, 2009.

    If you are interested in applying for TCG sponsorship, please email judge@upperdeck.com with the subject line, “Sponsorship for 2009 WoW TCG World Championship.”

    If you are interested in applying for Miniatures sponsorship, please email judge@upperdeck.com with the subject line, “Sponsorship for 2009 WoW Miniatures World Championship.”

    Sponsorship

    There are two types of sponsorship, Full and Partial. If you only need airfare or only need hotel accommodations, please indicate that in your email. This will increase your chances of receiving partial sponsorship. Please indicate your sponsorship request clearly in your email.

    Full Sponsorship: Upper Deck covers the full cost of your airfare and hotel for the duration of the event.

    Partial Sponsorship: Upper Deck covers the full cost of EITHER your airfare OR your hotel for the duration of the event.

    If you are selected for sponsorship, an Upper Deck staff member will contact you from September 14-18, 2009, and let you know the type of sponsorship you have received and to arrange travel to the event.
